Re: 5.0 scorpio

Dimitri lists it in his signature along with a Scorpio w 2.5 Turbo I didn't find any posted in these forums.

Re: WTB C3 Trans

Thanks for all the replies.

I found two different c-3s in my area. I've passed the info on to the buyer and sellers. Hopefully, they'll be able to make a deal.

Re: WTB C3 Trans

Hi Mike, Thanks for the reply. Ralph, my tranny maniac will only be doing the trans. He suggested an A4LD, but it's Ralph's understanding the customer wants a c3 due to cost. I have found a c3 in Maryland, but it's still in the XR. I'll tell Ralph of your A4LD and its condition. Who knows, customers...

Re: WTB C3 Trans

Thanks for the reply.

WTB C3 Trans

My trans maniac needs a complete c3 for a kit car using a Pinto 2.3. The trans maniac will rebuild the trans, so it must be in rebuildable condition. Don't be concerned with shipping, because we'll pick it up. We'll be coming from Allentown PA 18104, so travel distance is a concern. Please respond w...

Re: What current UK diff mount matches the XR4Ti?

Re: Horn stopped working

Yes, a 2nd horn. Can't remember exact location, but not hard to find. 2 different horns produce the dual tone horn "music"! Ask Ed Lijewski, he knows where all the hidden treasures are located.
